COVID19 – Child Care Options
Updated: October 26, 2020
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Employees may contact our EAP hotline: 800-272-2727 or visit www.workhealthlife.com/us. The EAP can help employees find childcare and other home care services.
To address the public need during the coronavirus crisis, they are offering care in hundreds of essential KinderCare centers across the country to offer childcare to families in essential service roles. If you work in essential services, and your center is closed, you are eligible to enroll your child in the essential center that is closest to you. If your center is not listed on the Essential KinderCare Center Locations page, it is temporarily closed in the best interest of global health.
